Mission in Sync, Politics 2020

Heel like a conditioned dog  
bow to the politician with favorable numbers
you people are unreasonable
destroying the vehicle of relief  
 
Culpability so blindly tethered to the fraction of ingrates that had the naivety to align themselves with the most consistent  
voices of change  
 
If a political party resembles the functionality of the bird whose wings are set to flight  
then how can success be realized with decidedly subjective warnings?  
 
Oh the  friends I hope in all else  
asking us to wipe misgivings of the last go round from synapses  
accessing merits fashioned years ago  
but refusing accountability for the ramifications of policy that fell short  
 
If there is a bridge we can fashion  
then have a cadence of some humility  
“for your sons and daughters (of all generations) are beyond your command”  
 
The lashes you administer speak of the haughtiness of certainly that your preferred candidate is preordained to a general election  
never considering how the blows refute your expressed determination  
 
Rid the land of the tyrant  
Dislodge hate  
Deescalate environmental degradation  
 
Be not averse to a mirror not cracked  
and the sunlight presenting the full reality  
of imperfection  
 
Reject the consistency of voices threatening piecemeal policy, preach moderation ad nauseam but please remember your decisions come at a cost  
 
The bridge is very shaky  
and reinforcements are a must  
we all can ignite flames that burn it down  
douse the embers of disunity  
two wings it takes to fly
